The Calimetrix R2* Phantom is designed for testing and quality control of MRI-based R2* quantification techniques. This phantom enables confident quantification of R2* over a broad range, appropriate for iron quantification. The R2* Phantom consists of a cylindrical acrylic housing containing twelve highly controlled R2* compartments submerged in a doped water bath. The phantom housing is designed to fit within commercially available head coils as well as a variety of other MR-compatible coils.
Nominal R2* values (1.5T): 15, 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, 200, 300, 400, 600, 800, 1000 s-1
